With the snip of a pair of scissors, a new era began for one of Utah’s fastest growing companies, StorageCraft Technology Corporation, as it officially opened its new corporate headquarters facility in Draper. The ribbon cutting ceremony marked the latest milestone for a company that began as a startup in 2003 and now has become a global leader in backup and disaster recovery of IT systems.
The 125,000-square-foot facility is the latest step in a major expansion for the backup and disaster recovery solution leader, which currently employs more than 240 in the United States, Europe and the Asia/Pacific region. The new headquarters facility has 182 employees and gives StorageCraft the ability to increase its Utah-based workforce to more than 400 during the next few years.
“StorageCraft is always diligently working to provide our partners and their customers with fast, reliable products to maintain access to their valuable data and IT systems,” said Jeff Shreeve, co-founder and chief executive officer. “The opening of our new headquarters is a testament to the efforts of our hard working employees, reliable products and the mutually beneficial relationships with our partners around the world.”
The new building, which was developed and is managed by Gardner Company and built by Jacobson Construction, is located in the Vista Station business park in Draper and exemplifies what StorageCraft preaches: backup and recovery. It is LEED certified and utilizes state-of-the-art systems for heating/cooling and power distribution and high availability, such as a 1.5 Megawatt generator that allows StorageCraft to run uninterrupted in just about any failure or disaster.
